Apparently Johnny made everyone sit down at his own 6th birthday party and watch him do a magic show...
Not much has changed!
During his school years he practised magic and juggling obsessively, then he went up to St John's College, Oxford where he obtained a degree in Engineering Science. Whilst at Oxford he spent a lot of time performing and learning new tricks (including fire eating!), so much so that he ended up getting free tickets to many a May Ball.
After Oxford Johnny decided not to become an engineer (to the great relief of
all who knew him!) and instead became a freelance perfomer and web
designer. After a few years he was encouraged to go to mime and
physical theatre school. His performance skills now include magic,
mime, juggling, escapology and fire eating.
Ten years later he has performed at over 2500 functions and is
constantly developing new tricks and routines.
